What kind of dental care do you provide?
Our dental services include comprehensive dental exams, cleaning (scaling and polishing), digital X-rays, dental extraction and teeth brushing advice.
What are dental X-rays used for?
Around 40% of oral diseases can only be identified by X-ray. Using radiography, we can check if there any anomalies, teeth that need to be extracted or signs of illness that weren’t visible during the dental exam.
What are some signs of dental problems?
Bad breath, trouble eating or chewing, excess drool, bleeding or red gums and mouth pain are all signs of a dental problem that needs to be addressed right away.
Is it normal for my pet to have bad breath?
While bad breath is quite common among pets, it is not normal. Tartar buildup causes your pet’s breath to smell bad. Just like in people, food and bacteria accumulate on the teeth and turn into plaque. And without brushing, plaque hardens and becomes tartar. Tartar and tartar-caused inflammation should be taken seriously, because it could end up entering into the gums and lead to infection.
Why is scaling done under general anaesthesia?
Placing your pet under general anaesthesia allows us to carry out a more thorough mouth cleaning and keeps our staff safe.
When should I start brushing my pet’s teeth?
It’s best to get your pet used to teeth brushing as soon as possible and make it a pleasant part of your daily routine. This means you should start as soon as you adopt your pet. You should brush your pet’s teeth at least once a day. It helps to do it at the same time each day so that it becomes part of your pet’s routine.
Brushing might seem hard, but it is the best way to maintain excellent oral health. Specialized food and dental treats are a good complement to brushing, but in no way replace it.
